Stacey’s Birthday Give Back Class – Fundraiser for STAY ENGAGED!

Stay Engaged is a non-profit founded by Gabby Yates whose mission is to bring yoga and healing justice to marginalized groups. For the past four years, Gabby has been teaching yoga to Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) clients. HPP works with at-risk pregnant women dealing with the trauma of homelessness, abuse, addiction or undocumented status. Yoga has provided HPP clients with relief from physical pain and a safe, quiet respite from the chaos of daily life.

Gabby founded her non-profit, Stay Engaged, two years ago and is offering a 200-hour yoga teacher training course to ten HPP staff members. Many of the HPP staffers are survivors of life experiences similar to those of their clients and can connect with their clients in a unique and profound way. These staffers have successfully integrated yoga into their personal and professional lives. Once they complete the yoga teacher training they will have the ability to incorporate yoga into their efforts to help their clients at HPP find stability for themselves and their children.  

The founder of Stay Engaged, Gabby Yates and some of the HPP Trainees will be there practicing with us.    

All you have to do is show up! Stacey will donate her earnings from the class to Stay Engaged. The money goes to:

• props for each student: mat, blocks, bolster, strap and chair
• books for each student according to the curriculum
• rent for the room we will use each month
• fees for yoga, anatomy, and philosophy instructors
• remaining funds will be used to pay new HPP yoga teachers a stipend to teach classes at HPP

If you can’t make it that night or want to make additional donations you can do so at: https://www.gabbyyates.com/peacebuilding/
